Lenovo claims to have sold more than 15 million of its smartphones in India through Flipkart till date, which made it the largest online seller of smartphones, accounting for a quarter of such sales.

The Chinese company, which cited IDC data to claim that one in every four smartphones sold online was either Lenovo or of the company-owned Moto brand, said it won't be increasing prices of phones this fiscal, despite memory and display costs going up from supply side.

Sudhin Mathur, Executive Director for Lenovo Mobile Business Group India, said, "We are the No 2 smartphone brand by value and volume in India and have been a dominating player in online space for the last seven quarters."

The company said its products have been a runaway hit among Flipkart customers.

Ajay Yadav, Vice President-mobiles, Flipkart, said, "We hope to build on this successful association."

Lenovo is aiming for the top spot in the smartphone market where it trails Samsung, which had a 23 percent share of the market at the end of September, up 8 percent sequentially.

IDC said, Lenovo had a 9.6 percent share of smartphones in the third quarter.

Mathur said the company intends to improve on this, and also make a mark in the premium segment within smartphones with Moto Z and mods, or modular attachments.
